Leadership, mentorship, partnership and involvement: important components of the extension mission in Hopkins County.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office in Hopkins County provides training opportunities during the year to several audiences identified as priorities in the County. At least three times per year, a group of volunteers gets organized as a board and provide guidance, identifies priorities and directions for the many different activities conducted by the staff. It is critical that as a general priority, the activities conducted by the extension office are needed by the community and are provided in a timely manner. To satisfy this objective, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Hopkins County is seeking volunteers to participate in the leadership advisory board and program area committees. These advisory boards meet three times per year, provide leadership, participation and implementation on the many different activities conducted by our local extension office. Community members interested in volunteering as board members in Agriculture, Youth Development, Family Consumer Science and Community Development are encourage to contact the Hopkins County Extension Office at 903-885-3443 and request more information on this volunteer opportunity.
